Redknapp Charged With Tax Evasion

Last updated : 14 January 2010 By Jim Bonner
Harry Redknapp has been charged with two counts of cheating the public revenue.

The Tottenham manager is accused with evading £40,000 worth of tax and shares the same charges that former Pompey owner Milan Mandaric faces, which relates to evading tax and NI contributions on a sum of $290,000 (£183,00).

It's suggested that this sum of money was paid in two installments from Mandaric to Redknapp via a bank account in Monaco whilst both were involved with Portsmouth FC.

Both Redknapp and Mandaric are due to appear at the City of Westminister Magistrates Court on Thursday, February 11th. This follows Peter Storrie's appearance at court which takes place next Wednesday and is also for "cheating the public revenue".
